after some further investigation I found out that the issue was related 
to some calls to the `solve` function in `make.rgb`, and indeed running 
`example(solve)` would hang my R session. After I changed the default 
BLAS with:

sudo update-alternatives --config libblas.so.3-x86_64-linux-gnu

the problem disappeared. The BLAS output of `sessionInfo` now that 
`solve` is working is:

Matrix products: default
BLAS:   /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/blas/libblas.so.3.9.0
LAPACK: /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/openblas-pthread/liblapack.so.3

while before when `solve` was not working it was:

Matrix products: default
BLAS:   /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/openblas-pthread/libblas.so.3
LAPACK: /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/openblas-pthread/liblapack.so.3

so it seems the issue is with the Ubuntu package `libopenblas0-pthread` 
and has nothing to do with R. I don't know why openblas-pthread was the 
default BLAS on my system.

Thank you for your help.
